    • An environmental purpose: preserving a threatened species.

    THE MEKONG EDEN FARM

    ASEV Travel invites travellers to meet Om at the Mekong Eden Farm, a young Laotian biologist trained and passionate about plants and agriculture. Accompanied by his assistant and newly international eco-volunteers, Om has re-created since less than a year, 40 minutes away from Luang Prabang, a small Eden along the Mekong on which he cultivates a bio experimental garden in the wild and sensitizes a village community around the good practices of organic farming but also eco-tourism.

    We support this young and promising 100% Laotian social entrepreneurship project by suggesting a unique immersive tour of Luang Prabang. In the company of his very young team guests may participate either in:

    • A replanting session of rice or vegetables
    • Vegetable picking
